  • A little correction; Blood: Fresh Supply does NOT use the build engine. It uses Nightdive's own KEX Engine. Although it may have used Build at some time during development.

  • so this game couldnt have been named after the actual torture device? i love the band. but, practices like that are shameful. shame bruce! also..... paul di'anno all the way.

  • I checked this one out on the Switch shop when looking for new FPS games to play. And it really intrigued me. A Sci-Fi game that actually uses the Build Engine? And that's not all; when I heard this was about Shelly Harrison, or Bombshell, - the same one who appeared in that mediocre shooter game in 2016 - it got me interested. As bad as Bombshell was, I can't deny that the character was an interesting replacement for Duke Nukem after 3D Realms lost the rights to the king himself. And good thing this game is much better; PLEASE let this be the gameplay used for any potential Bombshell sequel.

  • Was super bummed to discover I got motion sickness after 10 minutes of playing this game. Gave it a lot of tries, but the same thing kept happening. Maybe getting into my 30s has ruined the Build engine for me. At least I can still play Doom with no issues.

  • The band's name isn't even original, it's taken from a torture device. Oh well Ion Fury sounds just as good so I guess it's not an issue.

  • Alternate names they could have used: Trauma Queen, or Lady Killer, or Pin-Out Girl.

  • I loved this game, (almost) finished the campaign in just 2-3 sittings. Why almost? Because on the last level, once you hit Haskil twice, the game starts spawning an insane amount of enemies, and it overwhelmed my computer. :'(

  • I remember making maps after my friends and I found the build engine files on the disc of Duke nukem 3d and blood 😆 it was surprisingly easy to make simple maps on build engine. PLworld didn't exist yet but their were so many forums available 🙌 which was also how we had to hunt down game patches haha

  • Ion Fury also brought back my gaming childhood of retro FPS games! I downloaded this game on my Nintendo Switch last Tuesday and beat it four days later that week's Friday night! Another game I played on my Switch and beat a couple of days before downloading Ion Fury is called Project Warlock which is like Wolfenstein 3D, the old Doom games, and Hexen combined into one amazing modern retro style gem! You should play Project Warlock and then do a review of it!

  • Its just awesome how this game went into existence. There was Duke Nukem 3D --> There was lots of effort to make it playable on Linux --> 3D Realms gave up the engine and released it as free software --> the free software community took over and further developed the engine for years with almost exclusively Linux users playing the game due to the engine being free --> the original developer uses the for years developed engine and crates a whole new game. And the best thing --> due to the development nature of the engine --> it runs on Linux just out of the box and so got an official Linux release =) Such a long way and we're finally there.

  • 40 years old here.... and I don't get the appeal of "retro gaming" at all. Duke Nukem was amazing 24 years ago. Since then, other shooters have surpassed it in every way possible. I don't get the appeal of going back in time. I LOVED Genesis in 1992, today I can't play a ROM of it for more than 10 minutes without being bored. While a lot of games have been dumbed down, no question, and I do miss game play aspects of a lot of games (see Fallout 2 vs Fallout 4 as an example) there is no question I greatly prefer the graphics, sound, and physics of game made today over a 20+ year old game.

      Brandon DonatoBrandon Donato5 miesięcy temu
  • Yeah that build engine was simple and even fun to use, Blood and Shadow Warriors including this one, achieved amazing things due to the Build's limitations, one was you couldn't have two Sectors (or Rooms) stacked on top of each other. I spent more time extracting out the maps of Blood, Shadow Warriors, and even Redneck Rampage with the amount of limited DOS Tools at the time, trying to figure out myself how they pulled out those tricks.
